Scratch builder creates a replica Nilson tractor from period illustrations.
Gary Johannessohn fell hard for the Nilson tractor, building one from scratch without ever having seen an actual Nilson.
A visitor who looked at the replica Nilson when it was nearly finished made Gary’s day. “It sure is looking great,” he told Gary. “Where were you able to locate the Nilson parts for it?” Gary expects to begin work on another replica this winter.
